Last week's oversights ...
Reprimanded by his readers for some rather obvious omissions, Rob Neyer amends his columns on the best 3-4 combos and candidates for the Hall of Fame.
Anyway, that's probably a lot more than you wanted to know about sports writing (and please don't tell anybody). You want to know how I screwed up. Understood. Putting it most succinctly, here's one of the many, many e-mail messages I received in response to my column about the greatest 3-4 hitter combinations (i.e. Ruth-Gehrig, Mantle-Maris, Ortiz-Ramirez):
Andrew Hutchinson: "I bet you will get a lot of e-mails like this. How can you possibly leave out Willie Mays and Willie McCovey, the heart of the lineup of those great hitting S.F. Giants teams of the '60s?"
